Inspired by Mexico. Brewed for Chicago.
Cruz Blanca is a small-batch Chicago brewery passionately focused on ModMex lagers, sunny IPA’s and tropical wild-fermented sours. Inspired by the original Cruz Blanca Brewery that opened in Mexico City in the 1860’s.
Brewery Tours are held every Saturday at 3 p.m. and are $10 a person.
Reserve your spot here.
Cruz Blanca’s taquería takes its inspiration from the “smoke alley” at Oaxaca’s Mercado 20 de Noviembre, where thick plumes of smoke foretell the primal pleasures of wood-grilled meats.
Here, you’ll choose your main attraction —half-cured flank tasajo, red chile pork cecina, chorizo, chicken or portobello— and our taqueros will pile it all on a big beer tray with accompaniments of wood-grilled knob onions and peppers, smoky Oaxacan pasilla salsa, guacamole, crunchy pico de gallo, and limey cucumbers. And, of course, a stack of fresh-made tortillas.
Not into tacos? We also offer Oaxcan-style tlayudas — gigantic 14-inch, shareable tostadas with black bean spread, cheese, grilled knob onions, güero chile, green salsa and your choice of wood-grilled protein.

ABOUT CRUZ BLANCA BREWERY & TAQUERÍA
Tacos y Cerveza.
Emil Dercher, a brewer working in the great Alstatian technique of bottle-conditioning and using local botanicals, left France and made his way to Mexico City, where he sold beers under the Cruz Blanca label. It’s in that same adventurous spirit that we’ve reestablished Cruz Blanca Brewery in Chicago.
Cruz Blanca is a place to settle in and sample craft beers served with tasty tacos, tlayudas and chilled vibes.
